pkg-config 0.3.26

A library to run the pkg-config system tool at build time in order to be used in Cargo build scripts.
# pkg-config-rs

[![Build Status](](


A simple library meant to be used as a build dependency with Cargo packages in
order to use the system `pkg-config` tool (if available) to determine where a
library is located.

You can use this crate directly to probe for specific libraries, or use
[system-deps]( to declare all your
`pkg-config` dependencies in `Cargo.toml`.

This library requires Rust 1.30+.

# Example

Find the system library named `foo`, with minimum version 1.2.3:

extern crate pkg_config;

fn main() {

Find the system library named `foo`, with no version requirement (not

extern crate pkg_config;

fn main() {

# External configuration via target-scoped environment variables

In cross-compilation context, it is useful to manage separately `PKG_CONFIG_PATH`
and a few other variables for the `host` and the `target` platform.

The supported variables are: `PKG_CONFIG_PATH`, `PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR`, and

Each of these variables can also be supplied with certain prefixes and suffixes, in the following prioritized order:

1. `<var>_<target>` - for example, `PKG_CONFIG_PATH_x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu`
2. `<var>_<target_with_underscores>` - for example, `PKG_CONFIG_PATH_x86_64_unknown_linux_gnu`
3. `<build-kind>_<var>` - for example, `HOST_PKG_CONFIG_PATH` or `TARGET_PKG_CONFIG_PATH`
4. `<var>` - a plain `PKG_CONFIG_PATH`

This crate will allow `pkg-config` to be used in cross-compilation
to bypass the compatibility check, but please note that enabling use of `pkg-config` in
cross-compilation without appropriate sysroot and search paths set is likely to break builds.

Some Rust sys crates support building vendored libraries from source, which may be a work
around for lack of cross-compilation support in `pkg-config`.
